The Poland Campaign.
The presence of both crar and kalaer on the
battleground Jn northern Poland emphasize the
importance attaching to this campaign. The
inference Is plain that both aide are awaiting
the outcome with more than ordinary concern.
While not to be regarded as decisive lor the
whole war, It la evidently to be -of crucial char
acter, and It may yet become a turning point In
the current of the conflict.
While the Russian and German rulers are at
the front In Poland, the Belgian king continues
at the bead of hia army, and now the British
sovereign and the" president of France are giving
personal oversight to their troops. It may, there
fore, be inferred that all look for something in
the nature of a climax, and yet under the cir
cumstances, considering the approach of severe
weather, what would be more natural than thla
effort to give the inspirational effect of Imperial
presences to the respective troops? Nevertheless,
more than usual significance must be accorded to
the coincident appearance of ccar and kaiser in
the Polish battle arena. '
Patronize Home Merchants.
The retailers of Omaha have a Just griev
ance In the periodic Invasion by ao-called "Itin
erant" representatives of out-of-town . houses
seeking to sell goods here at the seasons of
brisk business without maintaining any perma
nent establishment. Objection is made, and
rightly, that thla is not fair competition not on
account of the character of the wares offered or
prices, but because of the representation that
exclusive or newer-style articles may be tbua
obtained, when the latest styles in the name or
superior quality are constantly carried by our
home merchants at prices as low, if not lower.
Having grappled with thia problem them
selves without satisfactory results, the retailers
have put the solution up to the newspapers, but
ail a newspaper can do In tbevmatter Is to point
out to the public what the condition Is, and try
to make Jocal buyers realize that it is not to
their Interest to patronize the Itinerant. Omaha
retailers, of course, appreciate the fact that
some trade in every town goes outside, usually
to a larger city, which loan is counterbalanced
by trade from other towna coming in. But this
Is distinctly different from the "representa-
These Itinerants, however, will not continue to

and there will be no profit to such business If
our people will only look around and let them
selves bo convinced that our own all-the-year-
around merchants, constantly accessible and al
ways responsible, can meet all their demands
with up-to-date wares and as good, or better,
values for their money.

Mr. Mia Flagg Young, superintendent of
Chicago's public achools. has again raised the
alarm over the large percentage of children1 who
fall to complete the elementary course and turn
aside from school entirely as soon as they can
ei irom unaer tne requirements of the law.
She reiterates what bas often been said about
the misfit of the school curriculum to the pupil.
The fault, she contends, Is In attempting to fit
the child to the school. Instead of the school to
It has long been contended that right along
this line lay one of the most serious problems
with which popular educaton baa had to deal.
It la easy enough to fit the school work to tha
unusually bright boy or girl, but not easy to fit
it to the dull one. Hence the effort has been
to strike a common level for the average, and
thla Is a task) that ao far bas taxed the moet
skHlful and Ingeaius.
But now comes another light on the subject
Chicago baa in progress a public exhibition, the
director of which haa made the rather startling
asserting that nine-tenths of that clty'a school
children have physical afflictions that Interfere
with their work In the claaa rooms. The most
common ailments are adenoids, defective eyes,
ears and teeth and enlarged tonsils. He de

It Is certainly possible, and perhaps proba
ble, that there Is a connection between the dis
covery of Mrs. Young and that of the health ex
hibition director. Perhaps, after all, the chief
fault does not lie In the abnormality of the
school course so much as that of the child, which
is subject to correction.
New Paramonate RaeHe Amaaeraeat.
A ataff cnrreetHmrlent.of the Brooklyn Eagle at
tha national capital writes to that democratic paper
"William J. Bryan's publlo espoueal of the i-aunes
of equal auffrage and prohibition a national reforms.
to be accomplished through the medium of conetltu
tlonal amendments has excited profound aetonleh
ment In the city of Waahlngton, In view of the
contrary views entertained on thete nueetlona by Mr.
Bryan's chief, Prealdcnt Wllaon. Mr. Bryan has come
out In unequivocal terms for woman euffragw and
prohibition of the liquor traffic, and haa given tha
democratic party notice that,. If It would keep step
with the tlmee. It muat Incorporate both propositions
In Its national platform of 131.
"On tha contrary. President Wllaon. on at lean!
one publlo occaalon, declared that regulation of tho
liquor traffic was properly a function of the states, and
to a delegation of suffragists who called at the
White House with a view to enlletlng hia support
for their cause, he aeaerted, with strong emphaeW.
that they should look to the states for laws granting
women the right to vote.
"In tha faoe of there anaertlona by the preddent,
Secretary Bryan made public a proclamation. In which
he declared that the democrat! of tha nation have
an leaue to face, and they may as wrll prepare for
It. Mr. Bryan described this Issue aa 'the alcoholic
mlltetone. He followed thla up with the aeeertlon.
"Woman suffrage Is coming nothing la more certain."
Then,' the secretary of atate added that the saloon
was the enemy of equal suffrage as well as of pro
hibition, and that the advances of the two reforms
should unite In a fight on the saloon. ,
Break with Wllaoa la Slarhtt
"If Mr. Bryan should adhere to hta views on suf
frage and prohibition, and President Wilson stands
by his guna, tha two men are apt to find themselves
seriously at odds In 1316. Both are tenacious of their
opinions and, despite his poaltlon In the cabinet. Mr.
Bryan haa shown a remarkable disposition to aeiwx-t
his beliefs, even although he haa appeared at times
Ss acting contrary to the administration program anil
"For example, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bryan took
oppoiilta sides In the rtcent sonatorlal campaign In
Illinois. Mr. Bryan went to that state and made an
active campaign before the prlmarlea In opposition
to the nomination of Roger ftulllvan. There Is au
thority for the statement that Mr. Bryan did not
consult President Wllaon as to hia course. Sullivan
waa nominated and, as a candidate before the people,
was Indorsed by the administration. Mr. Bryan'e
action In thla caae aroused great bitterness among
rome administration officials. Just what the presi
dent himself thought about It has never' been disclosed.
"In upholding prohibition and equal suffrage aa
national reform, Mr.. Bryan la not only running
counter to the views of tha president, but he Is dl
rectly In conflict on these questions with moet of the
democratic! leader In congress, notably Represent,
live Oscar W. t'nderwood of Alabama. Mr. Under
wood made a campaign for the senate and won on a
platform that declared regulation of tha liquor traffic
to be a state Issue. He maintains tha aame attitude
toward equal suffrage. Furthermore, the democratic
loader of the house ware Instrumental at the last
session In preventing a vote on both prohibition aud

bodying those reforms will be defested, If brought
to a vote at the forthcoming session.
pealatlaxs) on Bryan's Motive.
"Mr. Bryan was fully aware when he voiced hia
views on equal suffrage and prohibition that his party
leaders In congress, and possibly the president, wero
opposed, on grounds (, political expediency, to any
agitation likely to encourawe tha thought that tha
proposed reforms should be brought about by amend
ment of the federal constitution. Accordingly, some
of the leadera want to know the motive , that Im
pelled Mr. Bryan to speak out on these subjects l i
the way he did. and at this time. They fear that
Mr. Bryan, who haa tha courage of hi convictions.
Is certain to make trouble for the party on these
two Issues In 191S. They express grave doubts that
the president, who has been able to hold the secre
tary of. slate In check on most administration poli
cies, will be able to -Influence him' In the slightest
on what Mr. Bryan haa described as the moral Issues
of the day.' . '
"When Mr. Bryan entered the cabinet, everybody
who la anybody In politics predicted that his tenure
would not last more than a year. Mr. Bryan's enem'.os
charge that ha bas. been a colossal failure In the
office of secretary of state. ' They charge, further,
that no one knows this quit so well, as President
Wilson. Nevertheless, R Is a practical certainty that
Mr. Bryan will remain In the post until the- end pf
the administration, unless he chooees to retire of
his own volition. Those close to President Wilson
say that Mr. Bryan, whatever hia errors of omission
or commission, wilt not be asked to resign, nor Is he
believed at this time to harbor any such Intention.
"Whether Mr. Bryan la attempting to create a
situation that would wsrrant him In giving a good
excuse for a break with the administration Is a ques
tion that haa frequently been asked alnee the pub
lication of Mr, Bryan's pronounced views on woman
suffrage and, his reiterated opinions on prohibition.
It seems to some of the friends of the administra
tion that Mr. Bryan went out of his wsy to give
utterances that be must have known would arouse
hard feelings among leaders In congrees, and at the
same time place him In a position of antagonism to
President Wilson." - ,

BOUTH OMAHA, Dec. J.-To th Editor
of The Bee: On the morning after elec
tion In 1912 Mr. George C. Hasklns. now
deceased, who was a fine old gentleman
of the old school democrats, asked me
what I thought of the great democratic
victory. 1 told him that I thought aa I had
always thought, that the democratic
party had never run this country right,
and that they never will. On Monday of
this week a workingman was In my
office and he said he was in front of th
Cudah7 plant at 7 o'clock In the morn
ing of that day, and that fully 2,500 men
were there 'trying to get Jobs. Another
workingman who works at th Cudahy
plant and who was formerly a democrat
sail to me on Monday evening that this
condition always prevails whan th demo
crats are in power.
The languishing Industrie will not re
vive as they ought to revive until after
the election of IMA, when th republican
party will com back to power with one
of the greatest sweeps In the history of
the country, for th peop's are tired of
democratic, failures as they are always,
after trying them only twenty-one
months, sine Wilson's Inauguration.
There arc millions in th country today
suffering for food and clothing on ac
count of th democratic policies, who
need assistance, and they should' be
looked after first, and let the Germans
take cere of the Belgians. The repub
licans who voted for Roosevelt In 1912 will
not repeat tha error In 1916, for they will
all be back where they belong. With
the republican party in power today we
would not M the stsgnation that exists
In all parts of , th country. And we
would not now b compelled to pay a
war tat In times of peace In this country.

Aneleat Prophecy Canting Trne.
COUNCIL. BLUFFS, Deo. . To the
Editor of Th Bee: According te the
once noted French sage Nostradamus, the
present great war will continue four years,
culminating In the appearance of a world
Whether Nostradamus wrote, down his
prophecies in 1N3 or not does not matter.
They wer written before the event-for
they were printed before the event, read
before th event and utterly unbelleved
and forgotten-all before th event. His
prophecies were republished by M. Barest
about 1840. "W cannot deny that some
person, be he who he may, had aa amas-
Ingly clear perception of what is going
on Just now. The principal personages
hove taken their places on the stag."
Nostradamus waa born in 1503 and died
In 155S, having been th companion of
many great men and women, and having
foreseen th fall of th temporal power.
His contemporary, ODvariua, waa also fa
mous as a seer. Th prophecies of these
two became mixed together, Ilk the writ
logs of Bacon and Shakespeare, as repre
sented by J. J. Points.
By one or the other of these th career
of Napoleon waa vividly foretold. And
then comes the end of the perpetual Euro
pean conflicts. A new combatant appears
oa the scene, who bears for his sign the
picture of a Hon and a cock. A lane Is
then presented to him by the sulttn of
turkey.; The lion and cock Indicate an
alliance of France and England, surely.
"A cause of war is furnished by the
sultan." Th vw la last long forty'
nlna months endive with the entire sub
mission and huitiillatica of Berlin, Vienna
and St Petersburg!. V glory of victory
Is te be followed by calamities at bom
In due time. '
Peace wUl continue during forty-five
moons. Th River Seine will then widen
its bed with ruin and slaughter. New
factions arise, but will be chased from
th palace by th kings of the man of
valor. Then France will b declared by
'all people to be th treat and metropoli
tan nation. And he the man of valor
"rules th destinies pf th world: makes
